The 2023 Scrap A Car Scotland National Micro Banger World Cup is fast approaching.

The event takes place over the weekend of the 14th and 15th October.

Micro Banger Driver Information

Each ORCi National Banger promotor has been allocated a number of seeded entries for the main race, with a last chance race being held on the night for any non-qualifiers to gain access into the main race itself. The World Cup Race will see over 40 cars take to the track, with a pre-determined grid draw, with last chance entrants starting at the rear of the grid. If you are ORCi licenced at a track that runs National Bangers, you should contact your home promotion about acquiring one of their seeded spots. Having an ORCi licence does not mean you will automatically get a seeded spot on the grid.

Their will be several qualifiers from the last chance race that go into the Micro Banger World Cup. The seeded drivers will draw a number when they sign in to determine their grid slot for the main race, with the last chance drivers starting at the rear of the grid. The Micro Banger World Cup should be a 40 car race.

Drivers should book in through our website - Get In Touch > Book To Race, or by emailing, messaging or calling us directly. Drivers should take note of the current booking list, and if someone is already booked with the same number, then the driver may be required to use an alternative number.

Following the World Cup race, there will be a couple of all comer races on the Saturday night. On the Sunday, the Scottish Open will be raced for, as well as a couple of all comer races and a demolition derby.

There is a prize fund of almost £2,000 across the weekend. In addition to the races there will be prizes for Best Presented Car, Daily Entertainer, and the Sunday Demolition Derby. With the DD itself, having £250 up for grabs!

Other Formula Information

The APEX Garden Sheds Ministox British Championship qualifying heats are scheduled to take place on the Saturday night, with the main race being the first race on the Sunday afternoon. Drivers are asked to book in now for this, so that we can plan the event accordingly. NB, dependant on numbers, format is subject to change.
The Ministox will run 2 out 3 qualifying heats on the Saturday night, with the grids pre-determined and will be publicised on Friday afternoon. There will be no swapping of heats permitted, with the accrued points from the qualifying heats giving the grid for the APEX Sheds British Championship. The Fife Championship will see the British Championship grid reversed. Both the British Championship and Fife Championship will be run over 20 laps.

The 1300 Stock Cars Lochgelly Masters will run over the two days, with drivers being encouraged to book in now for this event, as we may need to restrict numbers. There is currently 32 1300 Stock Cars booked to race for this event, which promises to provide non-stop action throughout the weekend. The accrued points from the 2 heats and final on the Saturday, plus 2 heats on the Sunday will be used to form the grid for the 2023 Lochgelly Masters.

Junior Productions will contest their Scottish Open Championship and Fife Championship over the weekend with what looks set to be a record amount of Junior Productions. At the time of writing there is 32 Junior Productions booked to race. Each driver will compete in 2 out of 3 qualifying heats, with the grids pre-determined and publicised on the Friday afternoon. The accrued points from the heats will give a 32 car grid for the Scottish Open Championship, with the top points scorers at the front. The Fife Championship on the Sunday afternoon will see all cars in all races, with a graded order start for the two qualifying heats. The Fife Championship race will see the top point scorers start at the front of the grid.
